It seems unlikely that Jermaine Jones will return to the New England Revolution, according to ESPN commentator Taylor Twellman. The message gained legitimacy when Jones retweeted it soon after.

The news isn't particularly surprising as Jones is looking for a long-term contract, which is a tough sell after an injury-plagued season. Jones is looking to find a team that will employ him through 2018, when hopes to play in his second World Cup.

Though it appears that the Revs have moved on from Jones, there's a possibility that the midfielder will remain in MLS. If this happens, the Revs could profit as Twellman notes that a trade would be necessary.

Jones was signed by the Revolution as a Designated Player in August 2014. Since then he has contributed two goals and four assists in 24 regular-season appearances. He also has one goal and two assists in five post-season games.
